Police: Two York City men shot Wednesday night

Staff report

Two men escaped life-threatening injuries when they were shot Wednesday night in York City's east end, police said.

York City Police have not released the names of the victims but said the men are 19 and 21 years old and that both are York City residents.

They are in stable condition at York Hospital and are expected to survive their injuries, according to Officer Derek Hartman, the city police department's public information office.

The incident happened at 7:40 p.m. Wednesday in the 1200 block of East King Street, he said.

At least one of the victims was targeted, Hartman said, meaning the shooting wasn't a random act of violence.

Anyone with information about the shooting or the shooter's identity is asked to contact York City Police, either by calling the city's anonymous crime tip line at 717-849-2204 or by calling the department's main number, 717-846-1234.

People can also call York County Crime Stoppers at 717-755-TIPS. All calls to Crime Stoppers are confidential, and callers don't have to give their names to collect cash rewards.

Tipsters can also send information to police through the CrimeWatch mobile app.
